This guitar is a copy of a Gibson ES-165. I bought it new but damaged from Richard's Guitars in June 2011. The story of its purchase and the reason for my selling it are in the topic My guitar history.
It has Richard's amazing setup, with a lovely, silky smooth low action - I can just sit for hour after hour with this guitar in my hands. On so many occasions, at the end of a gig, someone will come up and comment on its lovely sound, usually played through my Fender valve amp.
As this is the only one of the 7 guitars I will be selling that I bought from Richard's Guitars I thought I would mention it to all here to give you a head start. I have scheduled an ebay auction that will start on 29th June and finish on Sunday 9th July at 5.45pm. If anyone is interested in this guitar you have until then to make me an offer that I cannot refuse (probably around £170) or compete with everyone else in the ebay auction that will start at 1p.
Should anyone be interested, I am coming to England for most of July through Dover and will be based in Chalfont St. Peter but also travelling to Church Stretton, Sheffield, London, so collection or maybe even delivery could be possible.
Here are the photos that were taken this afternoon and will appear on the ebay advert:
